will my body lift affect future lift kits???

ok well i have decided that i'm going to ditch my BB and go with a RE 4.5 inch superflex system

now my question is that i currently have a 2 inch body lift....previous owner installed it.....will that affect the use of this kit??? or is it compatable

or will i have to take it off to install this kit???

thanks,
blake

Your present body lift won't affect the installation or operation of a suspension lift.

If you call more wheel well clearance a bad thing, then I would remove it. Otherwise, it is compatable.

Honestly, I would stay with 35" tires. 36" would work too because of that 2" BL.

if it were me and I was staying with 35's I'd order the 4.5" kit but with 3.5" springs.
